locked Re: 1 minute Re: 60 meters: Operating guidelines for FT8


This is another opportunity to use Bill's quote:
"...no one should be mindlessly blasting through QSOs without adding in their common sense and operating skill." -Bill Sommerville, G4WJS, [WSJT-X reflector, 2018/09/25/14:12 UTC]."

Let's keep the burden of complying with the regulations squarely where it belongs: on the operator, not on the developers!

That said, I'll add Bonnie's own quote to my list (thanks Bonnie):
"5357 is the ONLY international Amateur Radio Service channel on 60 meters.
Be nice to it. -Bonnie KQ6XA"

With kindest regards,
Kai Siwiak, KE4PT
